It’s Monday! 

Yesterday, I mentioned that I’m listening to Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk and reading More Than This by Eleanor PerenyiSince then, I went and added a book because I just can’t leave well enough alone, can I?

Last night, after the kids had gone to sleep, I found myself wide awake. I blame a late coffee. I needed it, okay? Anyway, I didn’t want to watch anything and I didn’t want to turn any lights on, so I opened my iPad. After trying a couple books, one stuck. And stuck FAST. I read the first 50 pages of The Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and Good Golly Miss Molly Is It GOOD. Where’s my iPad, cause I need to start reading again.

What magic are you reading this week?

I feel like I’ve been reading these two books forever! Thankfully, they are both well worth the time. The Summer Book is especially charming and I’m taking the time to savor it.

Last week I finished A Separation by Katie Kitamura in audio. It was read by Katherine Waterston. Best I can tell, it is her first time narrating a book and I really hope it isn’t her last. I think she kept me going. The book wasn’t exactly boring…okay, yeah it kinda was. It meandered a bit and the main mystery of the book was…left ambiguous. Unanswered may be even more correct. I don’t mind ambiguous endings when there is an idea of where the ending is. A Separation doesn’t know how it ended and left me frustrated. Gorgeous writing (and narration!) though.

It took me a few different tries on different audios, but I think I’ve settled on House of Names as my next audiobook, because OMG WHAT A BEGINNING.

So, what are you reading this week?

img_5070It feels like forever since I finished a book. Now that class is over and I’m free from homework, I’m hoping to find time to read again. How lucky for me that it’s Bout of Books week! What a great time to bury myself in books until something sticks.

I am currently reading Beartown by Fredrik Backman (I loooooove him) and I hope to finish it. I also hope to read more of Atlas Obscura by Joshua Foer, Ella Morton, and Dylan Thuras. Then I have several books I picked up at a local book sale that I’d like to dip into, most especially John Saturnall’s Feast by Lawrence Norfolk and The Accident by Chris Pavone.

Gosh, it feels good to be back at this.
